Reviews for Cheesy Cheddar Broccoli Casserole
"This was really good! Great alternative to green bean casserole."
"This was a real crowd pleaser and has made it onto my menu planning short list! I made it for Thanksgiving, but it will definitely find its way to our dinner table a lot! I did use low fat versions of the soup, sour cream and cheddar cheese and it was still rich and delicious!"
"This is the broccoli version of green bean casserole. As I prefer broccoli, I like this recipe even better than the classic."
"I'm not much for broccoli, but this casserole was pretty good. It'll be a keeper!"
"Made it exactly as written. Very good! Definately will make again. My husband requested it , and I found this recipe. Took it to my inlaws for Easter dinner, and my father in law ate three helpings. Everybody went back for seconds. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!"
"1/15/15I have never made this dish before and my family just loved, they kept asking for seconds. My 4 yr old granddaughter ate extra servings as well. This will be a regular at my table. I added more onions and cheese on the top and it just gave it that extra!.I highly recommend this dish! Thank you for sharing.Mollie."
"Had only about a half cup of sour cream, so I filled the rest of the cup with Miracle Whip. My family loved this for Christmas dinner. This is a keeper."
"I've been making this for years....everyone loves it. It's so easy. I use mayo in place of sour cream. My topping, in place of french fried onions, is crumbled Ritz crackers mixed with melted butter. I've used cream of chicken soup as opposed to the mushroom soup...either is good. Delish! I skip the placing of ingredients in a sauce pan and just place everything, along with steamed broccoli, in the casserole dish."
"It's a great recipe but only if you add 1 can of cream corn! It makes it amazing. Without the cream corn, it just isn't the same. It gives it that extra something & everyone loves it!"
"I've been making this since it was first published in 2005. It never fails to get rave reviews!"
"Delicious! I used a little less broccoli and added 1 cup of cooked white rice to this recipe. I also chopped up my own onion to the mix. For such a simple recipe, this was big on flavor. I would make it again! :)"
"The best broccoli cheese casserole ever! Simply delicious. I cut down the broccoli amount slightly and added 1 cup of cooked white rice to the recipe. I also chopped up my own onion in the mixture, although I did top with the french fried onions. I will definitely be making this again! :)"
"This recipe is always a hit when I make it. If I don't bring it to a family function, there are always complaints."
"This is good. I put in sauteed mushrooms and I used fresh broccoli that I steamed."
"This was very good my husband said it needed more crunch so next time I will just put all the onions on top so they don't get soggy. But other than that it was really good I ate the left over's the next day for lunch and just as good."
"I made this for the first time and took it to my brother-in-laws for Easter. I had two people ask me for the recipe."
"Delicious! I added fresh mushrooms and cooked cubed chicken to make it a meal. My whole family loved it."
"I made this for the first time with Christmas dinner and it was a big hit. I used fresh broccoli that I lightly steamed in the microwave before adding to the casserole. Very tasty and a nice change from the traditional green bean casserole."
"All in all a great recipe-a bit bland, though. Went really well with our Christmas Ham. Next time will add some garlic powder, minced onion, Worcestershire sauce, & mushrooms. Thanks for the recipe will make again next Christmas!"
"This is delicious. Tastes like Green Bean Casserole except with broccoli. I will definitely make again."
"I made this exactly according to directions for our wedding reception and it was fabulous! My guests raved about it and asked for recipe. Some folks even used it as a spread for crackers later on that evening! I think I may try this recipe again and add some grilled chicken chunks to turn it into a main dish. This is definitely a keeper."
"This is an excellent broccoli casserole! I make this for my family at least once a month."
"The crispy fried onion on top of this dish is what makes it awesome"
"This was a big hit at my house. Half of my broccoli was fresh and I cut the FF onions by half. It went very well with the Easy Baked Haddock recipe here on TOH."
"WOW! This is better than what i anticipated it would be! So delicious! Definatly a keeper!"
"tried this in place of my usual green bean casserole and everyone loved it. will now be my new side dish."
"I wanted to try it on my family before I served it for visitors - they loved it! I made it with fresh broccoli and lots more french fried onions. Great!"
"I have been looking for a basic broccoli casserole that my mom used to make and this may be even better! Super easy to make. I used 3 oz of onions in the mix, but topped it with buttered cracker crumbs instead, to mellow out the onion flavor some. It IS best served immediately, hot out of the oven so the cheese is still gooey and bubbly."
"Superb....my family quite enjoyed this recipe."
"I picked this recipe out of your magazine and suggested my son's girlfriend serve it for Thanksgiving dinner. It was very good!"
"Whole family loves this dish. We add chopped water chestnuts for a little more crunch. Delicious."
"This would make a great Thanksgiving casserole if you ever get tired of the green bean casserole (LOL). I lightened it up some and it was still wonderful!"
"This rating should have been 5 stars! Don't know why it showed up with only 3."
"This recipe is fabulous. I had a very similar recipe, but this one is so much better! I was wondering if it can be made ahead of time and popped in the oven at the last minute."
"This was a huge hit at my Easter dinner! The taste is fantastic and everyone wanted the recipe. It was very easy to make and so much better than the standard green bean casserole. There wasn't a morsel left in the casserole dish (6 people)."
"I make this casserole for every special occasion and everyone loves it, even the kids."
"Left off the french fried onions, because we don't care for them, and it was still terrific!"
"very very good. Everyone in my family doesn't like broccoli. But I wanted to try something different and everyone loved it. Will make again and again for sure. Thank you for sharing this recipe"
